I remember as a kid coming home from school, and, the first think I would do, would be to grab the milk out of the fridge. I’d add a couple of scoops of milo and stir the cold milk through, for a mug full of goodness!
For us adults, this treat will bring you back to those good old days, sipping down some milo and watching cartoons in the afternoon or heading out to play some cricket or footy outside with the neighbours.
Stir in the milo to these baked treats and, once out of the oven, delve in and enjoy!
Vegans Substitute: Swap the butter for margarine and the egg for egg replacer.
Please note: The photo will be up shortly for these delicious biscuits, I haven’t had the opportunity to put it up yet.
16 enjoyable biscuits
125 grams butter
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 1/2 cups SR Flour approximately
3 tbs Milo or drinking chocolate
1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
butter or oil for greasing
Preheat your oven to 160 degrees Celsius or 320 degrees Fahrenheit (Fan-forced oven – add another 10-20 degrees for non-fan-forced).
Melt your butter in a bowl and mix in the vanilla essence.
Crack the egg into the mixture and beat until the mixture becomes thicker in shape.
Beat in the bicarbonate soda, milo and sugar.
Once you are satisfied that the colour is even and the milo has mixed in properly, slowly add your flour.
Mix the flour in and when the dough does not stick on your hand, it is ready. If it’s still not right, add more flour.
Roll the mixture into a thin sausage/log and chop into 2 cm pieces.
Spray two trays with oil or grease with butter.
Squash each piece flat and add onto the tray.
Place in the oven.
Check the biscuits at ten minutes, if they are not quite ready, watch for another five.
